Our Deepwater Horizon Lecture Series starts on Monday. Aside from the content (more about that in a moment), it's been exciting to see this come together as members of our faculty, spread all over the world this summer, developed the plan and found speakers from all over US. The session on September 24th will feature six of Tulane's own law faculty: Professor Robert Force, Adjunct Professor Joshua Force and Professor Martin Davies from our maritime program, and Professor Adam Babich, Professor Mark Davis (Director of our Water Law Institute), and Professor Oliver Houck from our environmental program.
Well over 100 second and third year students will be taking this course for credit by attending all of the lectures and doing research papers on a variety of related topics. But the series is open to the entire University community, indeed to the public at large. We'll be using our largest classroom, Weinmann Hall 110, for the lectures, and there will be live streaming into other available classrooms AND over the internet for those who cannot be here. The series has its own website at www.law.tulane.edu/bp, and here's the list of topics and dates. Exciting to see this getting started.
